    They will feel a LESSENING of the burden, but for most larger companies they're not going to reduce their HR staff all that much over this, and the added costs in terms of raises, bonuses, etc.... created by the increased base pay of the employees will probably reduce those savings more than marginally. There IS a savings from going to this type of system, but I don't really believe it's as massive as many people want to believe.

    As for not giving it up.... Non-Union employees really don't get an option on that. The company can take away the healthcare premium and is under no compulsion to return anything other than their own premium payments to the individual employee.

    FYI t o all.

    Dennys can easly afford the ACA.

    looking at DENN 10-k filings from most recient Qtr.

    Looking at the 206 company owned stores, employing about 9270 people.

    They will pay a fine of $18,480,000 to dump every one. (this is good for employees btw- they just go to an exchange for cheaper insurance)

    They have profits of $51,040,000 on these stores.

    Profits will now be $32,560,000 year. Dont like it. Move to China DENN!

    The story is about John Metz from Florida. He independently owns and operates 40 restaurants. He is cutting employees. He is adding on the tax. This isn't Denny's doings.

    Yes. Like I said.
    By definition, it is derogatory slang for a Venture Capitalist. Which I am sure you know, which would be why you chose to use it.

    What makes you think you have a right to dictate what those profits are an by what logic do you assert an EMPLOYER must provide healthcare for employees?

    From your link:

    Canada has one of the lowest rates of MRI scanning machines per capita in the developed world, with six MRI scanners per million people, compared to 40.1 in Japan, 14.4 in Switzerland and 26.6 in the United States. Pittsburgh alone has more MRI machines than all of Canada.
    26.6 per million, let's see... I've had two MRI scans in my life, 70 years. It takes maybe half an hour to get one, counting getting ready and getting on the machine. One MRI, then, working, say 20 hours per day, could do 40 patients a day, 14,600 in a year, or 146,000 per decade. In seven decades, one machine could do 1,022,000. 26.6 per million could do over 27 MRI scans per person. How many are really needed at any one time?

    Hell you could greatly reduce cost by limiting the function ER now serves.

    There you go, just turn people away from the ER and let them get well or die. We'd save a few bucks, that way, but still have the most expensive healthcare system on Earth. We'd also be giving natural selection a helping hand and thus strengthen the herd.
    There is two options there, way to miss the second.

    Secondly, it is absurd to force people to provide their labor for others.
    It should be voluntary or none at all.

    Believe me, you do not want to go there. Unless you want a rant about "government healthcare" from someone who has experienced it.



    But I like how your response to the point that business owners face additional burdens under Obamacare was to try to somehow ad hominem the messenger by saying he has health insurance. Awesome refutation, there.

    I love how this is the attitude of the same people who would castigate them for making that very move.
